Today is May 29, 2017 -
Sign-up today for the countdown to the Six Day War.
June 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War (June 5-10, 1967) between Israel and the surrounding Arab countries. The war altered Israel, the Middle East and Jewish history, and some of its results remain unfinished.
The videos will be released on 5/17, 5/24, 5/30, and 6/4-6/12.
View the webpage, promo video, and sign-up here: www.sixdaywarproject.org. We ask that you share each email with your lists. We also ask you to post them on social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter). Each email will include sample text for those posts.
A great timeline of the events of the Six Day war was recently published by Martin Raffel and Gil Troy, http://www.hadassahmagazine.org/2017/05/02/six-transformative-days-primer/
The videos are being produced by Jerusalem U and the Jerusalem Post. The project is a partnership between Jerusalem U, Jerusalem Post, Israel Action Network/Jewish Federations of North America and Jewish Council for Public Affairs, and the Center for Israel Education (CIE). The CIE’s Prof. Kenneth W. Stein is supervising the historical content of the project.
